After Colby Covington had to withdraw from consideration to face Tyron Woodley for the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Welterweight title at UFC 228 on Sept. 8, 2018, Darren Till got the nod for the championship bout in Dallas, Texas.
To hear “Chaos” tell it, the promotion would have been better off if they waited until he was at full health to face “The Chosen One” a few months after, since neither Woodley or Till have the drawing power to sell pay-per-views.
The next UFC pay-per-view is just four weeks away, as UFC 228 originates from the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas on September 8th. In the main event, welterweight champion Tyron Woodley puts his belt on the line for the first time in 2018, as he goes up against undefeated English contender Darren Till. Women’s flyweight champion Nicco Montano also makes her first appearance of the year, and she hopes to pull off a massive upset by successfully defending her title against Valentina Shevchenko.
